Increased text-shadows on Desktop

Post by Mumrik93 » Tue Jan 08, 2019 3:33 pm

I've just recently migrated to Linux from windows and so far i love it, I'm using Linux Mint (Cinnamon) and it's working great, but as time has past and I've started to change wallpapers a few times over the weeks I've realized that Linux Mint lacks apparent text-shadows (under the desktop-icons) I did a quick search and i cant find that many people with this problem (to most it might not be a problem?). I find this troublesome since it really strains my eyes if i use a bright background, the text almost fades into the background.

I've been asking around on the forum for a while ( viewtopic.php?f=90&t=282853&sid=1d9d194 ... b7a921fa1e )
and we've ended up being a little group who rolled ideas on how to increase the shadows, but sadly we didn't manage to solve it. I know that other desktops such as KDE (which i considered using before i chose Cinnamon) and *sigh* Windows, has more apparent text-shadows.

So basically I'm wondering if it's possible to have the text-shadows increased by default? Or event better, make it possible to increase them trough the settings?
